RIO Commit-to-Submit Writing Program

Are you ready to submit an NSF CAREER proposal in 2019? The NSF CAREER Commit-to-Submit Writing Program can help get you there!

Led by Research & Innovation Office Proposal Writer Diane Carillo, this program is designed to support your proposal development from start to finish through one-on-one writing and proposal development coaching, a series of workshops, peer writing groups, and red team reviews. Participants will learn the ins and outs of writing a competitive NSF CAREER proposal, and will be prepared to submit by the July 2019 deadline. Please contact Diane Carillo at diane.carillo@colorado.edu to join RIO’s NSF CAREER Commit-to-Submit Faculty Writing Program.

Attention College of Engineering and Applied Science Faculty: Please note that if you are a faculty in the College of Engineering and Applied Science, you will work instead with CEAS Research Support Office Proposal Writer Molly Riddell (molly.riddell@colorado.edu) to support the development of your NSF CAREER proposal.
